President Biden told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos just two weeks ago that American troops would stay until every last American got out. That didn’t happen.
From an appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America:
Stephanopoulos: “Are you committed to making sure that the troops stay until every American who wants to be out gets out?”
Biden: “Yes, yes.”
Asked if that commitment holds for our Afghan allies too, Biden said: “The commitment holds to get everyone out that in fact we can get out, and everyone that should come out.”
That’s hedging on the Afghans, but it would still seem like a commitment not to leave thousands of them there, which he did.
